On Wednesday, November 17, Biden took an electric 1,000-horsepower GMC Hummer EV for a quick test drive while visiting G.M.’s Factory Zero plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan, to celebrate the factory’s grand opening and promote government support for electric vehicles.

Fox News reported that he then slowly drove it to the end of the parking lot and performed a tight 180-degree turn that was accomplished with the Hummer EV’s four-wheel-steering system activated.

60mph in three seconds

After pausing briefly, the Hummer EV pulled away with tremendous speed, squatting on its rear suspension.

The full-size truck can reach 60mph in three seconds using a WTF launch mode, which GMC says stands for “Watts To Freedom.”

A GM spokesman confirmed to Fox News Autos that Biden used it during his run.

He took one more run before pulling up to reporters and telling them, “This sucker is something else.”

“This is three times as heavy as my Corvette and three times as fast,” he said.

The Hummer EV is the third electrified truck Biden has driven in recent weeks, following the Ford F-150 Lightning and Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon.

State of the U.S. economy

In June 2021, TUKO.co.ke reported that Biden had announced the U.S. economy added 559,000 new jobs in May alone, dropping the unemployment rate to 5.8%.

This meant that Biden’s administration had created over two million jobs since he took office – the most jobs created in the first four months of any presidency since records began in 1939.

Making the announcement during a Press address on Friday, June 4, Biden also noted that wages had also gone up for American workers.

Biden said long-term unemployment also dropped by the second-largest amount ever recorded. Not only that, but the signs of further progress are already here.
